Jeffrey Freed draws upon years of tutoring children diagnosed with attention-deficit disorder (ADD) and concludes that most of these children are "right-brain dominant." These right-brained children are visual learners who perceive in mental pictures, and have great difficulty with the "linear thinking" widespread in today's schools. After examining the controversies surrounding the ADD diagnosis, the authors outline a program that can help the ADD child realize his full potential. They contend that our quick-fix, high-tech society actually encourages children to become visual learners, though the schools have not changed their teaching techniques to adapt today's students.
Freed has developed a simple, easy-to-apply program that works with, not against, the special abilities of the ADD child. In as little as ten minutes a day, parents can help ADD kids learn to harness their powerful visual memory and heightened perceptions, enabling them not only to hold their own but to excel - even in a classroom situation that is less than ideal. In straightforward language, this book explains how to use the innovative "Learning Styles Inventory" to test for a right-brained learning style; help an ADD child master spelling - and build confidence - by committing complicated words to visual memory; tap an ADD kid's amazing speed-reading abilities by stressing sight recognition and scanning rather than phonics; access the child's capacity to solve math problems of increasing, often astonishing complexity - without pen or paper; capitalize on the "writing and weaning" technique to help the child turn mental images into written words; and win over teachers and principals to the right-brained approach the ADD child thrives on. For parents who have longed to help their ADD child quickly and directly, Freed and Parsons's approach is nothing short of revolutionary. This is the first book to offer them reason for hope and a clear strategy for enabling their child to blossom.
Ring of Power: Symbols and Themes, Love Vs. Power in Wagner's Ring Cycle and in Us: A Jungian Feminist Perspectiveby Jean Shinoda Bolen
Best-selling author and Jungian analyst Jean Shinoda Bolen's vivid grasp of the story and the characters in The Ring of the Nibelung brings Richard Wagner's mythic four-opera cycle to life. The Ring Cycle has a hold on our imagination like no other operatic work, because it is archetypal, and has the power of myth as well as music, to reverberate in the psyche. As in her acclaimed Goddesses in Everywoman and Gods in Everyman, Bolen shows how myth illuminates psychology, and more-Ring of Power goes beyond the psychology of the individual, to examine dysfunctional families and patriarchal institutions. In "The Rhinegold," "The Valkyrie," "Siegfried," and "Twilight of the Gods," we see how the pursuit of power can be destructive to the personality and relationships. In "Freeing Ourselves from the Ring Cycle," Bolen describes how seeing the truth and acting upon what we know can liberate us, and lead to authenticity and individuation. "Beyond Valhalla: A Post-Patriarchal World?" provides a provocative and hopeful speculation on the possibilities of the return of the repressed feminine into society that is a millennial potential.

In 2008, just as Laura Roppé was poised to burst onto the music scene, her doctor called her with news that left her spinning--she had been diagnosed with an extremely aggressive form of breast cancer. Just days earlier, she had signed a dream-come-true contract with a record label; now, she wasn't even sure how much longer she had to live. Never one to back down to a challenge, however, Roppé gathered her courage, took stock of her priorities, and made a decision: Cancer may take my hair, she told herself, but that's all it's getting. More than a cancer journey, Rocking the Pink is a quirky, charming, and poignant ode to love, friendship, and music. Roppé is unflinchingly honest and unfailingly funny as she tells the story of her odyssey: from childhood dreamer and giddy valet parker to the Hollywood stars to disillusioned lawyer, wife, and mother; from budding songwriter and late-blooming recording artist to determined cancer survivor. Full of raw emotion and humor that will make you laugh through your tears, Rocking the Pink is a chronicle of discovering one's true self through life's difficult circumstances--and a testament to the hang-in-tough, take-no-prisoners attitude it takes to kick cancer's butt.

Ayurveda, the ancient art of healing, has been practiced in India for more than two thousand years and survives today as a living medical tradition whose principles are at the heart of many "alternative" therapies now used in the West. This "science of longevity" has parallels with Buddhist thought, and advocates a life of moderation through which the three humors of the body will be brought into balance. The writings selected for this volume are taken from Sanskrit medical texts written by the first Ayurvedic physicians, who lived between the fifth century b. c. and the fourteenth century a. d. Here readers will find wide-ranging and fascinating advice on the benefits of garlic therapy, prayers for protection against malevolent disease deities, surgical techniques, exercise regimens, the treatment of poisons, the interpretation of dreams, and more.
When Lieutenant Commander Heidi Kraft's twin son and daughter were fifteen months old, she was deployed to Iraq. A clinical psychologist in the US Navy, Kraft's job was to uncover the wounds of war that a surgeon would never see. She put away thoughts of her children back home, acclimated to the sound of incoming rockets, and learned how to listen to the most traumatic stories a war zone has to offer.One of the toughest lessons of her deployment was perfectly articulated by the TV show M*A*S*H: "There are two rules of war. Rule number one is that young men die. Rule number two is that doctors can't change rule number one." Some Marines, Kraft realized, and even some of their doctors, would be damaged by war in ways she could not repair. And sometimes, people were repaired in ways she never expected. RULE NUMBER TWO is a powerful firsthand account of providing comfort admidst the chaos of war, and of what it takes to endure.
The Rules of Normal Eating: A Commonsense Approach for Dieters, Overeaters, Undereaters, Emotional Eaters, and Everyone in Between!by Karen R. Koenig
Here is a book for all eaters who yearn to improve their relationship with food. It gives the answers to what struggling overeaters, undereaters, and chronic dieters all want to know: how to be comfortable around food and find true pleasure in eating. Written in easy-to-understand every day language, The Rules of "Normal" Eating lays out the four basic rules that "normal" eaters follow instinctively-eating when they're hungry, choosing foods that satisfy them, eating with awareness and enjoyment, and stopping when they're full or satisfied. Along with specific skills and techniques which help promote change, The Rules of "Normal" Eating presents a powerful, proven cognitive-behavioral model of transformation that targets beliefs, feelings, and behaviors about food and eating and moves the reader toward genuine physical and emotional fulfillment. Readers will learn how to reprogram their dysfunctional beliefs about food and eating, manage uncomfortable feelings without turning to food, and establish new eating habits that tune their bodies in to natural sensations of hunger, pleasure, satisfaction and satiation. Chocked full of humorous insights, compassion, and practical wisdom gleaned from a therapist and educator who used to diet and binge with the best of them, this book teaches the reader how to think and behave around food the way that "normal" eaters do. The Rules of "Normal" Eating digs deep and addresses how under- and overeaters can overcome the underlying conflicts that often plague and prevent them from becoming "normal" eaters-difficulty sensing what is enough for them, holding onto a mindset of deprivation and self-denial, feeling undeserving of genuine pleasure, and a lack of awareness and skill for effective emotional and physical self-re.

Here, in one neat package, is pretty much everything you need to know about trail running--running, that is, on dirt trails, not pavement. It isn't (or, at least, it doesn't have to be) torture, endless hours of negotiating tricky mountain paths and inclement weather. Trail running is, we're told, less hazardous, less painful, and less exhausting than pavement-pounding. It's all about relaxation and communing with nature. The book is full of tips, some of them presented in a helpful, question-and-answer format; there's an excellent chapter on outfitting yourself for trail running; another on how best to train before a run; another on preparing, if you're so inclined, for a marathon. The author, a longtime trail runner, approaches the subject from a commonsensical, practical angle, avoiding pseudophilosophical claptrap about the deep meaning of running. Instead, he offers a hands-on, nuts-and-bolts, filled-to-the-brim users' manual that targets both veteran and beginning trail runners.

When you are making a decision, do you feel torn between what you are supposed to do and what you would like to do? Do you feel unable to live a fully spontaneous and authentic life? Are you troubled that some of the things you do conflict with your intuition or inner knowing? Have you wondered why your positive affirmations aren't coming true? In general, do you feel stuck or frustrated with the way things are? If so, you may be experiencing a conflict between your evolving spirit and your tribal beliefs. Tribal beliefs are a set of unwritten rules that are passed down to us from our families and other cultural, religious, or social organizations about the way life works, what defines a good person, and how we should live our lives. Unfortunately, some tribal beliefs can limit our intuitive choices causing dissatisfaction, anxiety, fatigue, depression, and eventually physical illness. In this warm, engaging, and inspirational work of personal renewal, Christel Nani guides you to listen to your inner "knowing," the always wise and honest voice of your spirit that will illuminate the specific tribal beliefs that are standing in the way of your success, happiness, and healing. Based on a program that has helped thousands of people transform their lives, Nani shows you how to creatively rewrite your tribal beliefs in areas such as work, marriage, health, and success in a way that harmonizes with your own spirit, talents, secret wishes, and individuality. Best of all, you will be astonished at how easy it is to accomplish such a personal transformation and how quickly you will be healed and liberated from a sense of burden and guilt that you probably believed would be with you for a lifetime. The decision to break free of your limiting beliefs and live the life you were meant to live is truly a sacred choice. With this joyous and enlightening book as your guide, you have the power to make that happen--starting today.
This book breaks new ground in transpersonal pscyhology. It argues for a people-based, person-centred religion which hold that spiritual authority is wihtin each individual, and that spiritual initiation is a path of lived inquiry, for which all traditional systems are a secondary resource. Sacred Science will be of interest to all those who believe in the emergence of the self-determining human spirit within the field of religious belief and practice. It is written for the general reader, yet specialists in transpersonal studies will find that it addresses critical issues at a sophisticated level.
